Banks Mill Studios on Bridge Street in Derby is once again opening its doors at the end of November and you’re invited along to see what happens in this old Victorian rope factory.
Banks Mill, a University of Derby managed business incubation centre, boasts over a decade of supporting creative business start-ups. During this time, the iconic building has become known for its creativity and wealth of artistic talent, and demand for the studios remains high.
There will be over 50 artists exhibiting between Friday, November 19 and Sunday, November 21 including fine art, sculpture, jewellery, fashion, photography, weaving and graphic design.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to purchase exclusive items for gifts or even stocking fillers just perfect for Christmas, as well as gaining an understanding of the wealth of talent that lies within this unassuming building in the centre of Derby.
The Friday evening promises to provide a great atmosphere – join us for a glass of wine, a mince pie and live music in the foyer from 5pm.
The weekend takes on a family friendly feel, with face painting and a trail to keep the children occupied.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
Refreshments available. Please note there is no lift and ramp access is to the ground floor only. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
